Wisdom and Understanding According to God


No amount of effort will yield God’s wisdom.  It can’t be valued or found in the world (vv. 13,14).  It can’t be bought for any price (vv. 15-19).  The living can’t find it (v. 21), and neither can the dead (v. 22).  One must revere God and turn from sin, and trust and obey.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Job 28:12,20 and 28:28.
